N.Y. man's mysterious disappearance still unsolved
Fort Covington, New York - March 2, 2011
"I want to know where he is, one way or another," Roxanne Stratton said.
Stratton is the mother of 21-year-old Jason Wing. The young man from Fort Covington, N.Y., has not been seen since late August. His mother describes her son as man who loves his family and the outdoors.
"No matter what we did, we always had fun," she said.
According to Jason Wing's family, one of the last confirmed sightings of him was at the Franklin County Jail. He went there to visit his girlfriend, Tiffany Barrick, who was serving time. She said Wing acted strangely that day.
"It was like he had something to tell me, but he didn't want to tell me," Barrick said.
After the visit, Wing reportedly left with his friend Dustin Trimm. They went to Trimm's home in Fort Jackson.
"What we heard from Dustin is that he went to work, he got a phone call that Jason had two big black garbage bags full of clothes, got in a black car and left," said Tammi Wing, Jason's stepmother.
Jason Wing's family is now looking for answers. They say it is uncharacteristic for Jason to not contact at least one family member daily. They admit their son has been in trouble with the law and used marijuana and cocaine.
"He never did it in front of me, or around me, or the rest of the family, but I know that's what got him into trouble," Stratton said.
State police still classify Jason Wing's disappearance as a missing person investigation. They say they are following numerous leads.
"I miss everything about him; his hugs, his smiles, his kisses, his laughing, his playing and joking around with the kids," Tammy Wing said.
A family holding out hope, but as each day passes the same questions runs through Roxanne Stratton's head. "Am I looking to bury my son or am I going to bring my son home safe?"
Jason Wing is 5'8" tall. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Tattoos cover most of his body and he has a pierced lip and tongue. Wing is known to wear a gold necklace and a silver bracelet on his right hand. Call N.Y. State Police if you have any information.
